The Property From the first impression this deceptive cottage appears smaller than its true size. This is due to the original 1800s cottage having been extended over the years, and now creating a large family home. From the front door the inner hall leads you in two directions, firstly to the living areas of the house. A family room, which could easily be used as a dining room which has patio doors opening to the rear garden. The exposed stone walls and slate tiled floor add charm.

. The current owners use this room as a media room and there is a concealed drop down cinema screen mounted in the ceiling. The recently fitted modern kitchen is a spacious room, taking up the entire ground floor of the original cottage. There is a complete range of modern units with complementary counter tops. This is a great family room providing ample space for a kitchen table and chairs. The exposed beams and large stone fireplace with a gas fired stove provide the character. A modern 3 oven range has pride of place set in a brick surround.

. From the kitchen you enter a very large sitting room with hardwood floors, exposed beams, a grand stone fireplace with wood burning stove and patio doors leading out to the swimming pool. This room is also large enough to have a dining table at one end. The stairs to the first floor lead from this room.

. The second part of the ground floor accessed from the hallway include two further bedrooms, both having vaulted beamed ceilings and one with an en-suite shower room. Set away from the main part of the house this area could easily be adapted to create an independent annexe. To change the larger bedroom to a kitchen/sitting room, this will provide enough accommodation.

. On the first floor are three double bedrooms, the larger master bedroom has French doors opening to a private balcony that looks onto the rear garden. A modern bathroom suite has 'Jack and Jill' doors allowing for use also as the family bathroom for the other two bedrooms

The Garage The upper level of the detached large triple garage has been converted by adding a superb spacious home office. Set away from the house with its own balcony and wired with cat 5 cabling for computers. There is a space for a cloakroom (currently used as a server room). A wide balcony offers countryside views providing a pleasant distraction from work! This property could easily be converted into an additional property subject to planning consent.

Gardens & Land A long drive leads towards the property with trees and a large open lawn area to either side. This leads to the large triple garage and ample parking area. Steps lead down to the pool area to the side of the property. There is also a carport to the front of the house giving off road parking from the lane and direct access to the house. To the rear of the property is an attractive patio seating area. A large feature pond and footbridge is set to one side. A stone arch leads through to the swimming pool and summer house, further patio and seating surrounds the pool area. A path from the rear patio leads through trees to a secluded lawn area with a large detached timber summer house and also currently housing a static caravan. This may also offer extra accommodation. The total plot including the gardens and paddock is approximately 3.88 acres.

The Paddock From the main entrance separated to the right of the drive is the large paddock bordered by mature Cornish hedging and is predominantly level just over 2 acres (not measured). This would be ideal for grazing animals or equestrian use. To one part of this area has the potential for development with the appropriate planning permissions. There are lovely rural distant views from the paddock over the surrounding countryside and towards the sea.

Location The property occupies a delightful rural setting approached by a small country lane. The house sits in the northern corner of its very private grounds. The property is in a very convenient location with the A30 only 4 miles away and Newquay airport just 11 miles. Offering flights to Gatwick, Stansted and several other UK and European destinations.

The nearby coastal town on Perranporth offers a good range of local amenities, very popular beach and restaurants, whilst the towns of Newquay and Truro are both within easy reach. The city of Truro has an excellent shopping centre, variety of restaurants, cinema, theatre, railway station and a choice of public and private sector schools.


. Pennans Cottage is well placed for access to a number of beaches on the North coast including Perranporth, Newquay and St Agnes providing excellent swimming, surfing and walking on the coastal footpath. The area is popular with horse riders who are able to hack along the lanes, bridle paths and across the beaches.

Services The property has oil fired central heating, connected to mains water and drainage for both the house and office. There are 2 separate septic tanks for each property. The telephone is connected with broad band (connection not tested). Council Tax band F.
